Exercise your right to vote Tuesday

Published 12:01am Sunday, November 4, 2012

Vote for me! No, vote for me! All of the crying, begging and downing the other guy are ramping to a fever pitch today and tomorrow.

The din should gradually quiet down on Tuesday and — if we’re lucky — will be over by Wednesday morning.

After more than a year of hard campaigning, America is poised to choose one of two men as its leader for the next four years in Tuesday’s election.

Our nation’s choices couldn’t be more different. The question for voters is simple: Are you better off than you were four years ago?

If you feel you are, President Obama should get your vote.

If you feel America is headed in the wrong direction, challenger Mitt Romney is your best shot at turning America’s steering wheel a bit.

Obama hopes voters will give him four more years to finish what he’s started.

His biggest claim to fame —health care reform — is also his biggest downfall for his critics.

Romney’s biggest attraction for many is his history in business, something that many argue America desperately needs. That he’s made himself a wealthy individual should not — as his critics claim — be a badge of dishonor, but quite the opposite.

America was built with an entrepreneurial spirit that gives anyone a chance to live the American dream.

We’ve said it before, but we’re not fans of either candidate. Both have turned negative in their campaigning, which strikes a sour note to our ears. Further, both campaigns are quick to turn and twist the facts to meet their political needs.

We long for the day that our candidate choices are simply regular people who talk plainly — like most Americans do.

Until that time, these two men are our best options. So please exercise your rights to vote on Tuesday.

    Tuesday is a defining point in our history. We are at a tipping point in our history as a
    “free” society where the “American Dream” is experiencing the destruction of our
    capitalist system of government.

    The reckless spending that has and is continuing to being done is, by design, to bankrupt our nation which, if
    accomplished, will be replaced by a nightmare of “big
    government takeover that will control everything that we have or
    ever will have, as a free society.” The massive debt that has
    already been accumulated is such that it will take a miracle to
    overcome even if we are successful in electing a new leader and take
    the necessary steps to reverse where we are at this moment in
    history. Don’t give up your right to control your own destiny or the
    destiny of your country——the greatest nation on earth.

    If you do not know or understand what it is like to live in a Socialist
    or Communist country, you should spend the next two days in
    researching the real facts. If you haven’t seen the movie OBAMA :
    2016, go to a local store today, purchase it for $12 bucks and watch
    it before Tuesday.

    Friends, this is not something that is “gonna’ happen down the road” …this is something
    that is “going to happen with the swish of a speeding bullet”.

    Don’t let anyone tell you that your one vote doesn’t count.
    Don’t leave it for someone else to do. Don’t ever risk the thought
    of saying that “I wish I had done my duty”. This is a
    defining moment for you ………do your duty and save our
    Capitalist Republic. America may not be a perfect country or a
    perfect system but it beats the hell out of the alternatives. It’s
    all up to you now. PLEASE GO TO THE POLLS AND VOTE UNLESS YOU ARE
    ILL.

    Later…………

    Gee, I wonder who the Natchez Democrat is going to endorse? Hmm. Let’s see. I bet they don’t endorse either one, because they know the one that makes sense for our nation but it’s not their man and they can’t tell us why to vote for him!!! jajaja

    To my knowledge, we’ve never endorsed in a presidential election and do not plan to do so this year either.

    I DON’T KNOW ABOUT *BOTH* HAVE TURNED NEGATIVE NOR TURN AND TWISTED THE FACTS. WHAT I DO KNOW IS: ONE HAVE BEEN SAYING THE SAME THING SINCE ELECTED. THE OTHER ONE HAVE BEEN ETCH-A-SKETCHING FOR QUITE SOME TIME. WHEN IT COMES TO SIMPLY REGULAR PEOPLE WHO TALKS PLAINLY, ONE OF THEM LAYS IT OUT SO PLAINLY MY KIDS UNDERSTANDS HIM. THE OTHER ONE TALK SO HIGH-UP, I HAVE TO BREAK IT DOWN TO THEM. I TOLD THEM ALL OF THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THERE BACK GROUND. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT ” WE’RE NOT FANS OF EITHER CANDIDATES ” BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS: >THE CANDIDATE OF MY CHOICE<. TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY. *IF* THE CANDIDATE OF YOUR CHOICE WIN, I WILL ACCEPT HIM AS THE PRESIDENT OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY. BUT, IF THE CANDIDATE OF MY CHOICE WIN, WILL YOU EXCEPT HIM AS THE PRESIDENT OF OUR GREAT COUNTRY ? PS YOU COULD LEARN A LOT FROM ME IF YOU WOULD ONLY LOOSEN-UP, I BEEN THROUGH WHAT YOU GOT TO GO THROUGH. THE ONLY THING I COULD LEARN FROM YOU IS HOW TO SPELL BETTER.

    Deuce, your “shortcomings” go far beyond being able spell. Spelling may be our “strong” suite!

    Kevin,
    Sooner or later, everyone must make a “stand”. Your “stand” on telling people that their vote doesn’t count and your “stand” in calling our civic’s teachers a liar were a “stand”. What’s so hard about a presidential “stand”? That, in itself, is telling the people not bother to vote. Your “stand” against the electorial college system offered no alternatives? The failure of peope to take a “stand” is why our country is in the shape it is today, morally, economically and politically.
    Shame on you!

    Where can I buy it Bob, been wanting to see it.

    ought.

    Hi RTS, Jr,

    Thanks for asking.

    Every American, regardless of their party affiliation, should see this film. It was very professioal made and produced by a top notch Hollywood producer. It starts out slow with the reflections of a lot of research material that is building toward how this story developed and its legitimacy but keep on watching because it unveils a case that is even far beyond what I had originally thought.

    The last 30 to 40 minutes are exremely revealing.

    There is nothing in this film that the president hasn’t told us but it is all in how we as individuals ave interpreted what has been said.

    What is amazing to me is that the scope of what is happening and is going to happen in the near months to come. It reaches beyond the borders of the USA and and outlines how U. S. involvement will work in helpng to champion the people of all the countries of the world that have ever lived under Colonialism. Apparently, some in our world think that if you lived as such that you were enslaved much as were the Blacks were in the US and should be included in reperations and redistrbution for having endured.

    Please do buy it and watch because it is very revealing for everyone. Let your friends view it too. Serious stuff!

    I
    really do know want to know where I can buy it. Code name the store if you have
    to, but let me know.

    It’s
    too late for me to get it and watch it now, but I would like to see it. It will
    not change my vote however because I’m voting Romney/Ryan anyhow.

    People
    who vote Democrat just don’t realize that they are slaves to the government for
    the free stuff and checks, but they are. They will get on here and complain how
    the Republicans want to keep the black people down (like DaveDunce), but they
    can’t see that the Democrats have them in slavery just like they are
    complaining about. I just can’t understand it.

    Obama
    has done nothing that he said that he would do. His administration was supposed
    to be “transparent” with everything being broadcast on CSPAN. He said
    that himself in 2008. I have yet to see anything being debated on CSPAN to this
    day, especially the Health Care Bill.

    He also
    stated that if the economy wasn’t better at the end of his term, that he would
    be a one term President. Now he and his base are saying that it will take 4
    more years to get us out of the mess that Bush got us into.

    Every
    President inherits what the last one left. He knew what he was looking at when
    he ran, and said that he could overcome it in 4 years. Still, nothing has
    happened in 4 years.

    It’s
    strange how the jobs report suddenly looked better right here before the
    election, but the sheep will follow the Sheppard (Him, CNN, MSNBC, and all
    major networks)

    Bush
    didn’t leave anything unnecessarily. The war in Iraq was agreed upon by more
    countries than the US, they went with us. The housing crisis was brought on by
    something that Bush inherited Clinton and sub-prime lending rates. That’s the
    reason that he helped the banks I guess, because he felt obligated. That in
    turn gave Obama the excuse that he needed to bail out his fan base (UAW) GM and
    Chrysler. I would have let them fail myself. If you can’t figure out how to be
    competitive in the market (because of Union workers) then you should fail. They
    wouldn’t bail me out if my business failed. There would have been another
    company buy them out, do away with the UAW and they would have seceded.

    Well, I’m
    on a roll and I better get off. J
